    You have three years within which to either settle your claim or file suit so, yes, you can still pursue a claim at this time. You should speak with a personal injury lawyer who can review the case and help determine whether your landlord was negligent. We handle these types of cases and would be happy to speak with you if you want to call the office at (603)624-7200.

  2. Should childs benefits be calculated on ssd + workers comp offset in divorce?

    You are entitled to the ordered amount of child support, reduced by the amount of SSDI benefits you receive on behalf of the children because of your ex's disability. If the WC offset reduces the SSDI benefit below the ordered child support, then your ex would be responsible for paying for the difference. If you are unsure about whether the child support order is correct or should be reviewed, I would recommend that you arrange for a consult with a local attorney.

    I am assuming from your answer that the young man was actually an excluded driver. You could still bring a claim under your own uninsured motorist coverage. It is also possible you could bring a claim against the mother negligent entrustment. I would assume your prior attorney already looked at these possibilities, but call around to local attorneys and get a second or third opinion.

    The mortgage company is absolutely right. The Court can order your ex to pay the mortgage and if he or she fails to do so you can file a Motion for Contempt, but this doesn't get you off the hook with the mortgage company. Your decree should address this issue(assuming you had an attorney, many pro se parties don't think to include). Most commonly, your ex would have a set period of time to refinance the mortgage. Speak with your attorney or schedule an appointment with an attorney who can...

  5. Does a car insurance collection agency in N.Y. have the ability to call the DMV of N.H. to suspend my license for non payment?

    Generally, if you don't have insurance and you cause an accident, your license can be suspended until certain damages are paid. What is interesting in your case is that the claim is past the date for which the company could sue you for the original accident. What your options are now, and what actions could be brought against you, will depend largely on any paperwork or agreements you signed with the collection company. Certainly, you have a right to know what you paid them. Send a written...

    You need to speak with a malpractice attorney. Generally, the question is going to be (1) whether the care provided fell below the standard of care and, if so, (2) whether this caused the injury in question. An attorney will need to substantially more details and will need to review the records before it can be determined whether you have a case or not. (I changed the practice area for you question from employment/labor to malpractice)

    If you have no children, there is no reason you couldn't leave the state after filing. You may, however, need to return for hearings. How long the process takes depends on whether you two are able to agree on terms. If you agreed, an agreed decree of divorce could be submitted to the court and you would be divorced upon approval -- this is the fastest way to get divorced. If he wants to drag things out, contesting all matters until there is a final hearing, the process can be very time...

    This is one of the many down-sides to not having insurance. If you had insurance, your insurance company would either pay the damages or hire you an attorney to defend you. Since you don't have insurance, you are going to need to hire an attorney in Mass. to represent you or represent yourself (I do not recommend this).

    The police report may show fault. There are several boxes with codes up and down the right side and these are where the conclusions are stated. A local attorney should be able to review the report and give you more information.

  10. Can we make a rental agreement for my spouse to pay the mortgage until she is able to refinance?

    An attorney can help you work out the details of what might work best in you case. As one example of the options, you could draft the divorce decree so she gets the home and have X years to refinance (whatever time you agree upon). If she can't refinance, home gets sold and she gets the proceeds (since you are trading the equity for the 401k). You can include that mortgage payments must be timely or the home will be immediately sold. If you are paying child support or alimony, you could agree...
